7 Weird Ways Your Posture Messes With You
Who knew that a little slouching could do so much damage? Sure, bad posture can make your neck creak and your shoulders ache, but recent research shows that your slouch might be making you a grouch. Heads-up! Here are some weird ways posture can affect you—and how you can get out of the slump.

Lousy posture creates problems that go far beyond appearance. It puts uneven pressure on the vertebrae, contributing to chronic neck, back and shoulder pain and disk degeneration…creates wear-and-tear on joints and bones…and causes muscle stiffness and fatigue. Poor posture also compresses the lungs, heart and intestines, compromising oxygen intake, weakening the cardiovascular system and impairing digestion. It is even linked to an increased risk for earlier mortality. See Article

Before back-to-school slumps your child back into the “backpack hunch,” build his posture awareness and document his growing, changing body with a posture picture. Annual posture pictures are a great idea to keep a visual record of how kids look and stand. While teens ignore a parent’s nagging to “straighten up”, seeing an image of their own body hunched over makes a big impact.

80% of Americans suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives. This can be caused by several factors. Consider your posture and how you spend the majority of your day; many are either hunched over a desk or behind the wheel of a car. In addition to the 40-off hours per week that most employed Americans spend working at a desk, they also spend an average of 52 minutes driving daily. Simply put, our bodies are not meant to sit this way. Read more...Comments
Resolve to do something simple that helps you live longer: Stand UP. Besides giving you a better attitude, getting up from your desk or couch can have a big impact on your health, according to recent studies equating more time sitting with a shorter, less healthy life.
The results of 18 studies involving 794,577 people found “the average adult spends 50 to 70 percent of their time sitting." After examining time sitting with health, they found people who sat the most had a 112% increase in risk of diabetes; and a 49% greater risk of dying prematurely. This was true even if the research participant regularly exercised. The reason, “The most striking feature of prolonged sitting is the absence of skeletal muscle contractions, particularly in the very large muscles of the lower limbs.” Lack of muscle contraction means less glucose burned, resulting in surplus blood sugar which contributes to diabetes and other health risks. In other words... stand up and live longer. Read the article
